A gunman killed three people at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas City yesterday; we are again reminded of how a peaceful moment can turn into a terrible moment of death. The suspected gunman is a known anti-Semitic. He apparently picked this place to vent his seething rage. It is a terrible reminder of a dark mood that resides within our world—waiting to emerge in it's full fury.

by Steve Myers
(Posted Posted April 14, 2014)

As we prepare for Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread, people usually ask about products that contain leavening. I thought I'd post a blog with a bit of information to help.

by Mitchell Moss
(Posted Posted April 13, 2014)

It’s the last day before Passover, which begins at sundown tonight. In His day, Jesus, knowing that His hour had come, and that He would be delivered into the hands of the Romans to be killed, gave His disciples the lasting, unforgettable ceremony of the New Covenant Passover. The whole story of what happened during the supper He had with His disciples goes from John 13-18, but the first sentence of John 13 is what we will focus on:

It isn’t clear or specific what happened on this day, two days leading up to Jesus’ final Passover, from the Bible. That being said, there is an event that could have possibly taken place on this day, and which we can draw a lesson from nonetheless.

Get Off of Your Screen

I noticed it recently, and it happened more than once. I was spending time with my daughter. She was riding her bike in our driveway. But I wasn’t there. I was on my phone. Sure, I took her picture, tweeted it and iMessaged it to her grandparents. But I wasn’t enjoying this special moment, sharing in her joy as she was overcoming the trepidation of her “big girl” bike. There was my beautiful daughter riding her bike, and I was staring at my screen. Lost moments.

Instead of going back to Bethany to stay the night after the lengthy preaching and Olivet Prophecy, Jesus probably stayed on the Mount of Olives overnight. The next day is recorded in Matthew:26:1-5, Mark:14:1-2 and 10-11, and Luke:22:1-6, where we will read what happened:

The Christian Passover - Reviving Ancient Biblical Truth
by Peter Eddington
(Posted Posted April 8, 2014)

Is the biblical Passover valid for Christians in the 21st century? While its observance is not commonplace today, history confirms that the original 1st century Christians took part in the Christian Passover as described in the New Testament book of John.  Following the example of Jesus Christ, members of the United Church of God will again revive the ancient biblical command to take the Christian Passover this year, which will occur on the evening of April 13.
